About this Item

176 pages. Available Now. Book Description: "A comprehensive guide to owning and caring for your dog"--Cover. : From the Inside Flap: The enchanting Pembroke Welsh Corgi, a dwarf in size but a giant in heart and personality, impresses one as a sturdy, workmanlike herding dog, a pure-bred whom the Welsh have revered for centuries. The breed's characteristic foxy head, upright ears and soul-filled eyes make it an irresistible choice. It is the Pembroke's lack or near lack of a tail, as well as its foxy expression, that distinguishes it from its cousin, the Cardigan. For the owner or family seeking a friendly, able-bodied, ‘big-small' dog, the Pembroke will be delighted to make your acquaintance and share his life. This book provides the much-needed factual information about the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and its ancestry, character and standard, as well as proper selection, feeding, training, preventative health care and showing. The new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing the home, preparing for the pup's arrival and preventing puppy problems. In addition to an extremely authoritative!: text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full colour, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Whether it's basic training problems, allergies or fleas, this book is the way to prevention, providing the reader with the necessary guidance an owner needs from puppyhood through the senior years. Recommended by top breeders and trainers, this book is the responsible first choice of every new owner of a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Topics discussed include: History of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi; Characteristics of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi; The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Breed Standard; Your Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy; Everyday care of your Pembroke Welsh Corgi; Housebreaking and training your Pembroke Welsh Corgi; Health care of your Pembroke Welsh Corgi; Your senior Pembroke Welsh Corgi; Showing your Pembroke !: Welsh Corgi; Understanding the behaviour of your Pembroke Welsh Corgi. : Excerpt. ½ Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: The early canine has been categorised by historians and divided into four groups: the Mastiffs, the Dingos, the Greyhounds and the Northern Dogs. The Northern Group claims the northern wolf as its predecessor and the breeds which belong to it are those which can withstand the rigours of harsh conditions and extreme cold. These would include the Arctic breeds such as the Alaskan Malamute, the Samoyed and the Spitz breeds, such as the Pomeranian, Schipperke and Pembroke Welsh Corgi, with his Spitz-like characteristics of foxy expression and prick ears. The various pure-bred breeds came into being through selection for desired physical characteristics and mental traits that suited a particular purpose. The 'breeder' in prehistoric times was the caveman looking for a dog whose basic instincts assisted him in finding and catching food. Later, the 'breeder' was the farmer, who found that keeping a plucky, hardy dog around helped keep meat on the family's table. Other farmers and stockmen became 'breeders' when they selected dogs whose instincts assisted them in the keeping of large animals, herding and driving goats, sheep or cattle from the barn to the fields and back home again.
